"... There is an old garden and an" old "Nishi-gobo shobo bou" that was one of the stores of the Mitsuji Temple.
In this era where the historical environment is easily destroyed, many people have known this place that after 360 years ... today we establish "za za" as a place to protect and enjoy in the future ... "
Toshiko Hashimoto, society that protects the old shogyo and the old gardens
I'm not alone, there are more artists doing their own works.
I perceive the house and let the house perceive me.
Open and close countless doors, wander, walk, sometimes dance.
Everything is random.
During the course of the day the light changes
And now my movement adds new stories to the stories of this building.
* The term site-specific refers to a type of artistic work specifically designed for a particular location, from which emerges a unique interrelation with space. If the piece moves from the specific place where it has been assembled, it loses a substantial part, if not all, of its meaning.
